Management (Current Employee) – New York, NY – 2 December 2017
Expectations are high. You work extremely hard and contribute to the success of the company but receive no appreciation or reward for your above and beyond effort. It just becomes expected. Company is run by a few select executives at the top and they just push down ideas and orders without considering the effect of them. Then when those ideas or orders fail, it's the fields fault not theirs for making a poor decision.
Team environment among mid/lower level staff
no recognition, benefits are decent but cost employees a fortune, no growth opportunity, pressure.
Front Desk Associate (Current Employee) – Newport News, VA – 28 November 2017
No one in the "upper management" is qualified to peel a potato, much less run a company. GM is often out of the building "running errands" aka taking naps at his mother's house or doing God knows what else. AVOID.
Sales (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – 24 November 2017
I do not reccomend crunch or any corporate gym to reach your professional fitness career. Low pay for the amount done, benefits non existant,and managment can be up and down with high turnover with employees. This makes it difficult to have a structured team. Managment style is bipolar to a point where others are expected to carry the team and other employees just come to work to show up and are not disciplined for lack of effort.
Staff and trainers can get caught up with quotas that they forget about the needs of the clients and members therefore not putting the client first at times.
Modern Corporate gyms are just a popularity contest that plaster their slogans to make you think they care.
Free workout, networking with clients, hours can be somewhat flexible
High turnover, Low pay for trainers, admin, lead, sales positions. Unrealistic goals for training quota. Gym rules rarley enforced.
Water Aerobics Instructor (Current Employee) – Caldwell, ID – 20 November 2017
Crunch Fitness is a health club and prides itself on having certified instructors to help customers become and stay healthy and fit. I enjoy teaching water aerobics, my managers are professional and friendly and work hard at making Crunch enjoyable for the employees.
Personal Training Administrator (Part-Time) (Former Employee) – New York City – 10 November 2017
The personal training team is very awesome to work with; everyone is super friendly, very open environment. As pay periods close out, there is a need to ensure that everyone is on top of hours, so during those times are probably the most stressful. Certain positions are less defined. Good for people that would like to build their own kind of role, not conducive for people that might need a bit more structure.
General Manager/ Membership Director (Current Employee) – San Francisco, CA – 7 November 2017
Crunch is an amazing company, I have learned so much throughout my time with this company that I will be taking with me to continue my growth! I would recommend Crunch to anyone whois looking to have fun and go to work at the same time as well as learn a ton about Marketing, Sales, Service and Fitness!
Fun, Social, Competitive, dress down, Diverse
Long days, stress of sales, only 11 gyms in bay area
Manager (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – 1 November 2017
Managers are only concerned with hitting a specific number of patrons each month, to the point where I saw managers lie and tell people who requested to cancel that their membership was canceled when it was not.
Certified Personal Trainer (Current Employee) – Citrus Heights, CA – 31 October 2017
I love everyone there. They are very welcoming and helpful. I learned a lot from my manager. They give you the right tools to be successful. Everyone seems to be knowledgeable. They have fun every day and always has a smile on their faces.
Personal Trainer (Former Employee) – El Cajon, CA – 24 October 2017
I did not enjoy working her due to compensation. You can not get paid unless you are training someone. Starting off you must have a second job that you can live off of, because this is not a position you can survive on alone
Day Care (Former Employee) – Wayne, NJ – 22 October 2017
the place is disgusting and all the new renovations they did were not permitted, the whole place is a one big disaster. Working there will make you realize where all the stupidity in the world went.. right there in that work place
District Manager/Fitness Manager (Former Employee) – Lake Forest, CA – 19 October 2017
My experience as a trainer and manager for Crunch has been nothing short of exciting, fun, rewarding, gratifying... the CEO to the Kids club attendants have a belief in helping change people's lives. Crunch is always at the forefront in innovation and trying their best to outfit their locations with top quality equipment including those with the latest technology. They pride themselves on continuing education opportunities for their training staff. Crunch is a great place to be yourself and to be innovative in your style of work and training. Crunch encourages their employees to think outside the box and be creative with ways to change people's lives all while having fun!
